of long-term un unemployed. i hope some of the tax breaks, such as the breaks on social security payroll taxes can be continued onward from december. i think that's very important to keep money in the hands of the middle class and enabling their spending and spending creates jobs. >> eliot: all the miles you're talking b all of which i'm fully in accord with all predicated with president obama to guide the path. i agree if he gets the second term. one of the premise that i view and i think you view as one of the misguided policies of mitt romney if you lower the tax breaks you get an outbreak of investment. there was a survey that disputed that. they polled it under political pressure. what is your wisdom as someone who has studied this in great death, would this bring investment as mitt romney high hypothesizes. >> no, between cutting marginal tax rates on the top and creating more jobs or economic growth. clinton increased taxes and we had more jobs than when bush cut taxes. yet average economic growth during the years was better than it has been since. look at nations even in germany
. the iranian shooting with former u.n. ambassador john bolton and pulitzer prize-winning journalist judith miller. also, the racial divide dominating the presidential race in 2008. some say it was no different this year. what implications does that have for both parties? i will talk with former special counsel to president clinton ronnie davis and wrigley standard writer steven haze. end new signs that big changes are in the offing for president obama's cabinet tonight. fox is correspondent channing greenwell breakdown who is leading an do is staying in just moments. first, two days after his reelection of president obama is now faced with an international incident that some may perceive as an act of war, an incident that occurred five days before the election. for the latest details on our attempts to shoot down a u.s. truck or international waters to return to fox his national security correspondent jennifer griffin for report. >> aa 4:50 a.m., days before the u.s. president's election, to iranian fu25 fighter jets like these intercepted and fired twice upon an unmanned, unarmed u.s. m-2
right now. meanwhile after petraeus' testimony before congress, a big battle is brewing over u.n. ambassador susan rice's declassified talking points on the attack in benghazi. specifically why the role of terrorism wasn't reflected in them. democratic senator dianne feinstein, the chairwoman of the senate intelligence committee, says she'll investigate why the terrorist role wasn't included. still in an appearance on nbc's meet the press, feinstein said she was sure the white house didn't change the language in those talking points. >> with the allegation that the white house changed those talking points, that is false. there's only one thing that was changed. and i checked into this. i believe it to be absolute fact. and that was the word counsel was changed to mission. that's the only change that anyone in the white house made. and i have checked this out. >> republicans are accusing the obama administration of a cover-up and want ambassador rice to testify before congress. >> it's going to be one tough confirmation hearing. all right coming up, president obama on his way to c
ambassador to the u.n. what about what's going on in the u.n. this week? with the palestinians looking to have their status -- there's an entire agenda. the idea that we're focusing on one set of talking points is ridiculous. >> i know you to be a pretty nonpartisan guy, do you smell anything fishy with this benghazi investigation or the way it was handled? do you sense any incompetence? because if you talk to john mccain or lindsey graham, you ask the question, are we talking about a cover-up or general inconfidence? >> the idea was, why did they turn down the all the added security? why did the ambassador go without adequate security? that's a real issue. why were these decisions made? the question, then, of the talking points, what did the cia provide, why was the intelligence community late in apparently getting the points right? it's not the first time we've seen things like that. it's worth looking at. but the idea that a month later, we're still focusing on this rather than basic questions of foreign policy on how to deal with terrorism in these areas. seems to me we are missing
be something that's all that plausible, to be honest. >> the questions about what the ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, had reported, that her information came from the cia, that might have been why this could have some involvement with benghazi. we'll see in the few days that we have before those hearings start if we hear any more about that from people who were following this very closely. suzanne kelly, thank you very much. >> reporter: pleasure. >>> it's been almost two weeks since superstorm sandy hit and life is slowly getting back to normal for people in the northeast. far too slowly. millions of people lost power during the storm and about 160,000 more lost power because of the powerful nor'easter that hit this week. new jersey governor chris christie expects a big turn-around this weekend. >> life will be back for most of new jersey to normal come sunday. what do i mean by that? let's start off with power. we back tracked slightly in our efforts to restore power due to the nor'easter but after talking with the utilities last night and again this morning, my belief is that we will
keeps calling the president lazy and un-american. and topping it off, we heard romney out here in ohio today saying the president is bent on, get this, revenge. let's begin tonight with my interview with vice president biden. i started with that high octane issue of auto production right here in ohio. >> thank you, mr. vice president, for this time. here we are in ohio. what do you make of this republican ad that's been out there running for romney saying that chrysler is going to take jeep out of this state and send it to china? >> here are the people right in this state, toledo and other places, just back up on their feet, jeep is hiring people and they put out an ad saying that barack obama sent chrysler bankrupt so the italians could buy it. and it's just flat false. the most cynical play i've seen. there was an editorial in the "denver post" saying this goes to character. >> what does it say about romney's character? >> it says they don't have much character at all and the idea that these guys -- look, chris, they're running away from everything. on that debate, i thought romney w
are maybe. early chatter centered on u.n. ambassador susan rice, but her public role and controversial atements in the wake of the bill benghazi attacks could make a potential confirmation process through the senate and a very rocky one. no secret senator john kerry, head of the senate foreign relations committee would be interested in a job, though his open senate seat would trigger another special election in massachusetts. the democrats holding a solid majority in the senate, it could be something the white house would be open to explore. >> maybe the president is willing to into the possibility of using -- losing a senate seat if you want some bad enough. >> treasury secretary timothy geithner expressed his desire to return to private life. whiskey tax cuts set to expire and sequestration living, his departure is lated to be delayed. >> people like secretary geithner hve put a lot of energy into the issues related to the fiscal cliff, and they're going to want to see it through. >> the same is true of defense secretary leon panetta who ped with congress to find a solution to automa
was removed from u.n. ambassador susan rice's talking points. in the days following the deadly assault, rice said administration believed the attack was a reaction to an anti-islamic video. but, an associated press report says former cia director david petraeus testified on friday that he believed all along that the attack on the consulate was a terrorist strike. >> so let's -- before we set up these clips, let's make sure we set this up right. so we've been hearing, mark halperin, that susan rice said what she said because she was reading straight intel from the cia. we find out from david tet pet trace, this isn't true. that immediately david petraeus and intel officials knew this was an al qaeda attack. right? >> it's still kind of confusing. >> i'm basing that on "the new york times" reports and everything that i read through the weekend. >> totality of the reporting is there was another line coming out of the closed hearing was that they didn't want to say everything they knew in public because they didn't want the terrorists to know that tus government was on to them. >> i heard that.
that has nothing to do with health food. >> it's turning into a proxy war between senator john mccain and u.n. ambassador susan rice. top intelligence officials say they knew from the beginning that terrorism was involved in the attacks but kept rice's comments vague to avoid compromising future legal proceedings. they knew terrorism was involved but didn't know whether the attacks were planned in advance and they didn't have the suspect's identity. still, many house repub cans are saying he's unfit to succeed secretary clinton at the state department. >> i'm just curious. john heilman, first of all -- >> elizabeth warren. >> let's just say what happened, okay? the president's punch line was al qaeda is on the run, blah, blah, blah. they politicized intel. guess what, white houses do that. i'm not shocked, i'm not stunned. i wish they wouldn't have done it. but how do you protect americans in the future and what happened after the ambassador was already killed? but how long has susan rice been in public service, like since her 20s, right? >> a long time. >> so we actually have people on capit
a republican administration, in iraq? how about the failures of intelligence about reporting to the u.n. on weapons of mass destruction that no one could find? those are failures of intelligence. this may have been a failure of intelligence, it was corrected very quickly, it had terrible consequences, some americans were killed, including the u.s. ambassador. but it was by no means in the same league as the war in iraq. >> lynn? >> i want to quickly point out, the problem is what happened in the lead-up to the terrible murders in libya. not whether ambassador rice had a, had a bad explanation after the fact. what congress is doing is looking at why this happened. it could have been prevented. the appearance of ambassador rice on the sunday shows misspeaking, not good. but let's keep our eye on the ball on what the real problem is. >> lynn, bill, stand by. we'll be talking with you a little later in the hour. thank you so much for your perspective on this issue, this hour. this soon-to-be freshman congressman learned the hard way, it's tough to be a new kid on the block. why he literally
think it is important. that susan wright, the un embassy came out on the five talk shows that said it was because of the video that the libya attack happened. look at what 60 minutes released on line. there are long passages and questions about whether or not it was a terrorism attack look at this and then you judge why they left it out sunday night after susan wright said it was the video. >> steve: steve croft asked the president. you went out of the way to avoid the word terrorism in connection with the statue of liberty attack. >> brian: mitt romney said the same thing >> chris: can they said his was political. the president responded it was too early to tell how it came about. it was an attack on americans. the president is rehuctant to call it terrorism. he said what group was involved. if there was a group involved with rpg's and knew within two hours afterwards that an affiliate of al-qaida claimed responsibility on social media and for the president to say we don't know which group? it is terrorist. >> gretchen: it is it why that was important story not included in the ori
who the taliban shot in the face for standing up for a girl's right to an education. the u.n. has declared today a global day of action for malala. and many in britain are calling for the teen to be nominated for a nobel peace prize. so how is she doing today? here is dan rivers. >> reporter: it is staggering to see malala out of bed with her father looking through some of the thousands of get well cards she's received. it's exactly a month since she was shot at point blank range from taliban gunmen for her campaign for girls' education in pakistan. despite the bullet passing through her head and neck, she's able to talk. doctors at queen elizabeth hospital in britain are still assessing the extent of her brain damage. her only visitors so far have been her immediate family. >> i am thankful to all of these well wishers of malala who strongly condemn the assassination attempt on malala, who pray for her health, and who support the great cause of malalayousafzai, which is freedom of education. sdwr the cards from all over the world. some are signed by entire households, some by ent
. s. -- un security council held a closed- door consultation instead. following the consultations, members heard a report from the secretary. this is 50 minutes. >> a meeting of the security council is called to order. the provisional agenda of this meeting is the situation in the middle east, including the palestinian question. the agenda is adopted. the security council will now begin its consideration of item number two of the agenda. on behalf of the council, i welcome the secretary general, his excellency, mr. ban ki-moon who is joining the conversation at via telephone conference. i now give the floor to the secretary. >> thank you, distinguished members of the council, excellencies, ladies and gentleman. thank you for the opportunity to brief you today on my three- day visit to egypt, israel, the occupied palestinian territory, and jordan. since the situation in does that and israel escalated last week, i made it my priority to contribute to halt the violence with a priority aim of protecting civilians. i canceled a previously planned trip to travel to the middle east as a

's improving off the bottom. it's a huge increase. i don't think this is enough to get an un-- it's politically speaking, it's that friday number that people will be focusing on of the what is the unemployment rate. >> steve: the monthly? >> yeah. i think that may tick up. particularly if more people are looking for work, it could have an impact on this race by picking up even though things are getting marginally better. >> gretchen: does this thursday number, which we always report weekly, the first-time unemployment claims, people walk into the office for the first time, does that number correlate? >> sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. none of these numbers correlate very well. >> gretchen: so because this went down and lower than expected doesn't mean unemployment will go down tomorrow? >> no. on friday, if the number goes up, for example, goes up to 8, let's say, 8%, that doesn't mean that things are necessarily bad 'cause more people are looking for work. they feel more confident. so all these numbers have to be looked at in context and -- remember, these are statistical estimate
people are confused, right? >> two weeks later at the u.n. he did not mention terrorism but he talked about the youtube video. administration officials talked about the youtube video. i iced to write these statements in the white house. if you are not sure of what's going on you don't write things as definitively as they did. this was a coverup. megyn: we have michael barone coming up and we want to hear from him. five days out and there are a range of voting concerns in ohio, including questions about provisional ballots. absentee votes that may not count and voter machine problems. we are live in columbus on that. while all the polls suggest a tight presidential race. we are hearing about a hidden vote that may lead to a romney landslide. a winter wonderland doesn't just happen. it takes some doing. some coordinating. and a trip to the one place with the new ideas that help us pull it all together. from the things that hang and shine... ...to the things that sparkle and jingle. all while saving the things that go in our wallet. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home d

. host: here is an interesting article. if all or on twitter says, what about the u.n. watchers that have been followed with threats of arrest? who are they and what are they here? -- why are they here? guest: they have come to elections in the last 20 years and moderate them. to be clear in terms of what they actually do the polls now, they are not trying to intervene in anything that is going on. they are observers. they are watching what is happening. they are taking notes. i actually got to see their observer form on saturday. at the end of the election, they come up with a report to talk about how the election went, how the system operated. it is something that happens all over the world. my view, it is really bad form for the attorney-general from texas, and also the secretary of state from iowa, who basically say we will arrest these observers as they come out and see our with elections. the truth of the matter is, we should be transparent about this process and willing to let people see how our elections run. host: from fox news, greta van susteren said, the election is none of th
morning, carol. >> up to nine hours to vote. that's just crazy. some might say that's un-american. what do you say to that, lz? >> i say it's going along as planned. this is not news to the officials who implemented these laws, limited the amount of hours which early voting can happen and saw this tidal wave coming with the hopes of what it would do to deter democrats voting for president obama. this was all part of the very diabolical plan. i'm disturbed and every american should be disturbed by this. >> florida's republican governor did fight to limit early voting and he won. he decreased the number of days. in retrospect, was that wise? >> look, here's the deal. it is unfortunate what's happened in these three or four florida counties, carol. but let me give you a couple of statistics to balance out lz's claims of diabolical. in 2000, 15% of the vote was early voting. in 2008, that was up to 30%. and this year, many are expecting the early voting will make up 40% of the voting electorate. the point is, it is getting easier to vote earlier and that's a good thing. but because we had prob

again. >> hey, joe. >> you know, susan rice, our u.n. ambassador, has been taking a lot of heat. john mccain, lindsey graham going after her for repeating what the president says was the intel that was available at the time. you're on the committee. can you tell us, was susan rice, from what you know, just repeating what was being told to everybody in washington at the time on what had happened in benghazi? >> well, here's what i think, joe. i think without question, i mean, you know, you've got guys storming a consulate with ak-47s, with rpgs and firing mortars. they knew immediately this was a terrorist attack. there wasn't any question about that. and why the white house didn't come out and say that immediately, i don't know. they tried to soften it somewhat with regard to it was a spontaneous action that stemmed from a protest. there was a question about whether protesters were there. and five days later, susan rice goes on tv and says that not only was it a protest, but it apparently stemmed from this trailer or this movie that had been shown. and very honestly by that point in time
